Birdy's Wordys

When Birdy tagged me for the one word response exercise in self-limitation ... I thought "Cinch ...Easy peasy, have it done in no time".

Not so.

As ye may have gathered, if I get an opportunity to use 10 words, I'm not about to cramp my style, limit my verbosity, pull the reins on my rantings, and only employ 2. Where would be the fun in that?

But this WAS fun to do .... and insightful as well. The insight being that I really do use too many words when fewer would suffice and even from the way I am rambling on in this preamble just goes to show that given my head I could go on and on and on.


Ad nauseum.

Lest my head be empty on our trek north. Now I have to come up with a semblance of intelligent responses! Food for thought for the road.....BTW---that's not a colour! Cheater!

Love your responses. And your previous blog (I'm playing catch-up here) - how TRUE. Being a mummy and being the most important person in the world to the tiny person - wonderful. If temporary.

Re your comment on my blog, ooh, Rise, it ought indeed to be "an opened...". Just a typo, but it's so much harder to see one's own mistakes than other people's (and that doesn't apply only to typos, of course). Thanks so much for pointing it out.

I've changed it.

Enjoyed your responses!
Food for thought indeed.

Tanya Brown said...

LOL! I enjoyed reading this post, perhaps as much as you enjoyed writing it.

I saw your and Molly's notes on my blog regarding the posting of pictures. Have you had any luck using the method outlined at this URL?

If not, let me know and I'll suggest something else.

Hello, I hope that you are rested from your trip to the US. Your one word answers are very clever, I especially like 13, 20, 21, and, of course, 35.
